The merchanting bit never worked for me. I just don't have the patience to merchant and constantly deal with people. And, why stake your hard earned money? There's a good chance of losing it, then you'll be farther away from your original goal. So, my advice to you is to pick a skill, such as woodcutting, and stick with it. Once you've hit level 75, you can cut and sell magics. They sell for 1k-1.3k, last time I checked. With fishing, raw shark sells for 800 gp. Cooked still sells for 1k. Fletching - you can fletch and alch magic longbows, once your level is high enough. I'm not exactly sure how much they alch for anymore, because I stopped playing for a while. I hope these tips have been helpful.

Only bad thing is that woodcutting magics are the same speed no matter your wc lvl even if you are 99. Also sharks you can buy for about 750ea in w18 now im sorry to say to all u shark fishers. lol

Merchanting is by far the quickest safest way.

I use Merchanting. I got my money from Merchanting. When you do all right you get a lot of money.

All those method on top are all good ideas, but the thing i do to get money is killing giants. How eaisier can it be? Kill couple of giants, take the big bones and sell them for 400 each! Its probaly the best way to earn money in non members....

I would suggest 3 ways 1st way: Merchanting - Simply mix with the market, find out the cost price of things and try to sell them higher. I heard that merchanting god armours are good. Merchanting is only for people who are patient. 2nd way: Staking - If you are a good strategist in battling, you may consider staking as a choice, people could earn up to 50M in a single duel. 3rd way: High level Alcheming - So far one of the quickest way. The best skill is fletching, fletch yew long bows and high alchemy strung ones for 769gp each. I feel that high level alchemy is the best way because you don't have to stand under the hot sun expecting people to buy your overcharged stuff, or being killed while staking and lost millions.

I think mining is a good way for making cash.. If u dont have enough lvls i think the best way is merchanting.. Try to buy iron ores 50 ea from noobs and sell for 100 ea... There are many ways if u think.. Every item u can merchant.. U just need some cash to start it.. then u just keep on going....

i found some decent guides i will copy and paste lol i recon merchanting/rc/staking is really the only good ways now that people can make money on rs. this is because rcing nats = 300-320 per nat and all it costs u is 100 per pure ess. only problem for this way is u would need like 2m to start yourself off to buy glorys and ess (i have already done this and got 20 glorys and 30k pure ess which will hopefully amount to 9m after 30k nats have been made). every1 knows about merchanting lol it is an efficiant way to make money where every1 has their own ways of doing. staking is the only other major way now if you look at people such as twenty four who have made over 1 billion from this you can see it is affective. with the right stats and the right knowledge on what type of staking you are going to use your stats for you can stake on almost any cmb from like 40-126 because on 40 people fill there mage+range pures with cash just to stake. another hint for staking is always know what your up against. this means regulary look up the people challenging you. of ot os a lower level watch out for if they try and rule change this regulary happens because people think that they have the win in the bag but suddenly they allow food and the tables are turned. again you need a bit of money to start this off o and one last thing you will need is the knowledge on how much you spend and wen to stop. this happans to alot of people. they go on a amazing winning streak making up to 100k-100m an hour and then blow it all on a couple of high risk juels when they could of quiet easily just banked the money and got some phats or rares. i have had a couple of staking mate go from a phat to nothing in under a day cause they were hooked.... hope i helped.

Merchanting tends to be slow =\, in long term goals you could do rcing and when you get to lvl 91 rc you will be rich
